Here's what makes the picture extra special: I am a Huguenot descendant. Now, here is the ultra short explanation of the Huguenots. They lived in France about five hundred years ago, when Martin Luther began his protestant movement (doing "outrageous" things like translating the bible so that everyone could read it, not just the priests). The Huguenots were deeply transformed by Luther and his vision (And also Calvin, but lets not dive so deep into this ocean), that they cast off their Catholic commitments to follow Martin Luther's vision.
This is LUTHER- the movie about the dude I'm talking about(He changed the world):
Well, you know what happened. It was a bloody mess. Literally. Infidels were persecuted and murdered. My Huguenot family ended up fleeing to Ireland for safety, where they eventually migrated to Canada and United States. Now, understanding the scope of this religious alliance, along with all its implications, take one more look at the painting above and tell me-
Is it not more tragically romantic than Romeo and Juliet???
